Updated Docker package 18.09.0-0505 available

An updated version was uploaded on 14th August 2019 :)

The updated was flawless, the existing containers were restarted.
Seems fine so far.

Though, again this version leaves a sweatbitter taste: 18.09.0 is the inital relase of the 18.9 version from 11th Nov. 2018, without any bugfixes or CVE fixes. I strongly hope that Synology just messed up the version numbering OR backported all fixes to this particular version. Again Synology provdes a CE version from the year/month branch after end of the support period from Docker Inc for this particulare version - marvelous!

Indeed the installed version is based on 18.09.6, which was general available on 2nd May 2019. Gentlemen, we actualy received a Docker CE that has active support from Docker Inc (of course the UI is still a concern of Synology)

After figuring out that swarm works, I wrote a compose.yml to check wether there is a general problem with overlay networks.. The ingress mesh routing does not work, though.

The example uses traefik as a reverse proxy and uses the dsm's hostname as a routing rule to determine the target container. The target containers are a replica set of 3 instances.

Code:
version: '3.7'

services:
  traefik:
    image: traefik
    deploy:
      restart_policy:
        condition: any
    networks:
       overlay-test: {}
    ports:
      - published: 8080
        target: 80
        mode: host
      - published: 8888
        target: 8080
        mode: host
    volumes:
       - type: bind
         source: /var/run/docker.sock
         target: /var/run/docker.sock
    command: ["--docker", "--docker.swarmMode", "--docker.domain=traefik", "--docker.watch", "--api"]

  docker-demo:
    image: ehazlett/docker-demo
    deploy:
      mode: replicated
      replicas: 3
      restart_policy:
        condition: any
      labels:
      - traefik.enable=true
      - traefik.docker.network=overlay-test
      - traefik.backend=docker-demo
      - traefik.web.port=8080
      - traefik.web.frontend.rule=Host:dsm
    networks:
      overlay-test: {}

networks:
  overlay-test:
    driver: overlay

Requires `swarm init` before execution. Started with `docker stack deploy -c docker-compose.yml overlay-test` (overlay-test can be replaced with any other name for the stack)

Check the dashboard with http://{dsm-hostname-or-ip}:8888
Check the application with http://{dsm-hostname}:8080

Why would someone use swarm instead of docker-compose? configs and secrets! Though, swarm is way less powerfull than docker-compose and does not unfold its full potential on a single node.

@Telos: you might revert to the latest 17.05 release. When the container is created with docker-compose or docker stack deploy, the environment variables are missing in the resulting container.

Oddly, containers created before the update, still keep their environment variables.

Container started with `docker run -e` or from the Syno-Docker-UI are not affected.
 
I did test all varations earlier, because people claimed ENV variables wouldn't work and I couldn't belive it *cough*
I used 18.09.6 CE and EE on severall machines and osses without any problem.

I find it rather funny that the release notes specificly point out the updated version of docker-compose, while it appears that the qa team either didn't test it at all or made tests that had not any environment variables (like i did a couple of poste above). Though, the bug seam not to be located in the docker-compose binary, as docker swarm stack deployments are also affected.

Your assumptions are correct, but there is no ETA.
For time beeing the workaround for 18.09.0 is to either start containers with the UI / `docker run`, use the ui to manually edit the envs for exisisting containers or export container settings, modify them and import them again.

I am still on 18.09 and don't feel like downgrading it, because the containers I am running existed before the update. I am currious about what will happen if watchtower detects a new image, pulls it and re-creates a new container with the same params from it. My important stuff is (still :/ ) running on a three node Swarm cluster and moving the containers from Syno to the cluster is not that much of an effort.
 
But it's ok... When you download new image you get a number like this here:

capture 2019-09-01_01-12-50_PM.png


And when it disappears you know it's downloaded.

Lets see what 18.09.0-0506 brings to the table :) Thanks for the update!

Quick test:
- env variables fixed for `docker-compose`
- env variables are still removed for `docker stack deploy`
 
The new package has an oddity. While the withdrawn buggy version had a consistent number for the docker-cli and daemon. The new package has a newer cli version, while the daemon remained the same number. That the fix does not apply for Swarm deployments gives the impression that the fix is done half-assed. Having to fix a product with high pressure usualy results in a lack of proper qa - though, reputation wise, a lack of proper qa might hurt more than having to wait a couple of days more...

There is something shady with this fix!
